Some people find this episode horrific, but Phil, Bob and Jerry's banter is an excellent window into what made these guys tick. Having just finished Phil's book, it seemed gate-crashing and security problems were not uncommon in Dead history.
Oh, the show and the audio are excellent.
Subject: Listen to thunder shout, "I Am"
Anyone throwing punches at a show not only didn't get it but throwing punches so as to force the band to stop playing. That is really NOT getting it.
Still overall the band is in good form. The set list is a little out of whack with Half Step-AWOL which more than anything is why i put this at 4 stars
How about if this was 1970 and Pig Pen was singing Wang Dang now that would be something.
The fight thing is terrible.
Subject: a fun show to see
Subject: Throwing Punches
Subject: Re: My first show
Some highlights / caveats:
*That's definitely Wang Dang. I mean, you can hear Jerry singing, off mic, the damn words - why is this even debatable? Try it with headphones, yo.
*Promised Land here is the sacrificial lamb for the WOS. Start this one with Sugaree.
*The gorgeous Other One > Jam > WRS section here takes it all. Hearing that little Phil-led space jam glide so delicately into the WRS prelude is just beautiful.
*Casey Jones, halted for the melee. It's interesting to read stories here from people who were there, including the fellow in question :)
I'm a huge champion of the following show @ Dane County; what I wouldn't give to have THAT show sounds as lovely as this one does. This one's not among the *very* best of '73, but it's damned nice; woven from that same mysterious texture they perfected in the fall of '73. Glad this show is getting some more recognition. It's deserved.
Subject: Wang Dang Doodle!!!
As for you veteran guitarists/pianists who can't identify a melody, or think it doesn't matter.... Judas Priest, the things we bass players have to put up with....
Subject: This NFBM jam is like Dark Star
Subject: Keith plays jazz
Subject: I AM ALWAYS GRATEFUL
Subject: Thank You: Duckpond74
Subject: very nice
A typically strong Fall '73 show. Maybe not quite as good as 10-27 or 10-29 but worth hearing.
Subject: a little history here . . .
The 'Wang Dang Doodle' Organ Jam - if memory serves me right - was actually the band and crew trying to get, what we all thought was the House's Wurlitzer, on stage and put through the PA. The crew and Keith dealt with this for a long time between the first and second sets, and finally the rest of the band came on stage - with house lights still up - and started playing this tune. Kind of a mini sound check. They brought the house lights down and continued on. A night full of unusual occurances.
Five stars for this recording. The little jam between The Other One and Weather Report Suite is wonderful, and yes, the Truckin' is a good one. Nice sound, sweet playing . . . too bad about the 'human error' abbreviating the end of this otherwise fine show.
Subject: Who cares????
to my ears, it sounds like a loose instrumental cover version of "w-w-d". anyway, keith shines on the organ on this track. and a few others.
difffernet side of him, we don't usually hear.
Jerry's leads throughout this evening also sound extra inspired. there must've a good mix of the kool=aid that night. but it sucks that casey jones had to end because of a fight in the audience.
Subject: Wang Dang Doodle??
Great recording though!
Subject: sick, sick, sick!
Subject: casey jones
Subject: Don't overlook the souncheck
Subject: Organ on BTW Keith?? Wow
Truckin' through Let it Grow is an absolute pleasure, with so much else that is great before that particular tour de force.
Listen to Kieth on Let it Grow...he crushes it!
Subject: Thank you Charlie!
Noteworthy is Phil going nuts during Casey Jones at the end, literally he gets upset :-/ Check it out...
Subject: Nice, nice, nice...
Bobby seems pumped up during Mexicali Blues....
